Simple Steps For Fun St. Patrick’s Day Makeup


Begin with a foundation base for a smooth look that will make your makeup last longer.  Make sure that you also apply concealer over  imperfections so that your skin will become flawless. Next, apply press powder for a finished look.


First, apply a light green glittery eye shadow all over your eyelids, with a darker shade of green on the outer half end of your lids.  Afterwards, green eye shadow as a smudge liner under your eye, and use a medium green or brown shadow on your crease. This will create an interesting green eye with a pop of intense green color.  For extra pop, line your eyes and waterline with plum or black eyeliner, and then apply a decent amount of mascara for an extra dramatic look. You could also apply a bit of shimmer on your brow bone and tear ducts so that your eyes will pop even more.


Since your eyes are already pretty strong, apply a nude lipstick on your lips. If you are not used to wearing nude lipstick, then you should just apply a slightly brown/pink lipstick just to add a bit of color to your lips.


For the cheeks, all you need to do is contour the bones with bronzer or a slightly pink blush if you want to have rosy cheeks for the holiday. Don’t try to make your cheeks over extravagant, since you do want your eyes to be the star.

Basically, with this very simple and easy to follow St. Patrick’s Day Makeup, you will then look your best on this very festive holiday.
